All of our Franken/Solvent Resistant Glitter Powders have passed the MEK TEST!
What is MEK?
Methyl ethyl ketone (MEK) is a strong colorless liquid solvent that has a sharp, sweet odor. Methyl ethyl ketone (also known as 2-butanone) is a man-made chemical that is also found in nature. It is related to acetone and is used in dissolving paint, lacquer, varnishes and cleaning agent.
How Does Glitter Pass the MEK Test?
Glitter is soaked in MEK for 5 minutes. If the glitter does not bleed color or melt/dissolve any, this glitter would be considered solvent resistant.
